A group of Palestinians drilled a hole in the apartheid wall near Ras Kabsa area in the village of Abu Dis, southeast of occupied Jerusalem.
Spokesperson of the popular committee against wall and settlement in Abu Dis, Hani Halabyeh, said that the Palestinians used sledgehammer to create a hole in the concrete wall.
He added that three Palestinians were shot and injured by IOF bullets; two were identified as Bashar al-Hanash and Nour Zayd, while several others were suffocated due to tear gas inhalation.
Clashes erupted Tuesday between Israeli forces and Palestinians in the village after Israeli bulldozers demolished an under-construction house, under the pretext of being built close to the separation wall.
A number of soldiers stormed the village at midnight and imposed a strict military cordon.
